„You have to drink it with caution. The almost 70% alc. have quite a bit of bang. In the finish nice woody and dirty. I'm missing a little support from fruit sweetness in the finish. Otherwise, this is a really good Monymusk for the PRICE.“

„Clearly better on all fronts compared to the continentally aged version. The fruity notes are more present. Also quite alcohol-forward but after a while it integrates a bit better.“

„Not only the color differs significantly here compared to the continental matured version. Even if the alcohol is still disturbing here, the tropical fruits clearly unfold in the smell and taste. In the finish, bitterness and bacon fight against each other, which makes the rum at the end somewhat exhausting because it does not harmonize so properly on the palate.“

„I love high hogo rums. But this one is just a little too boring and too sharp. I love the mushroomlike flavour which is supported by honeycomb notes and ethyl acetate flavours. It is all right but not for this money“

„Says to me purely from the nose more like his continental brother. However, taste and finish of my assessment clearly more bitter and woody.Therefore, both on par and definitely not worth their money.“

„Nase: Typische Esternoten inkl. Lack und Gummi sowie dezente Tropenfrüchte. Die Honigsüße kann allerdings nicht über die über die alkoholische Schärfe hinwegtäuschen. Gaumen: Kurzer fruchtiger Auftakt, gefolgt von den Esteraromen inkl. dem Lack. Dann wird’s ungemütlich durch alkoholische Schärfe und langanhaltenden Pfefferauftritt. Abgang: bitter und pfeffrig Fazit: Wahnsinnige Präsens im Gaumen. Das nenne ich vollmundig. Mir jedoch zu forsch und pfeffrig. Also Ecken und Kanten zur Genüge vorhanden. Besser als der kontinentale Bruder, aber weit davon weg mir zu gefallen.“
